Ecology Rolls Out UV-Curable Additives

Tuesday, March 9, 2010

Comment | More

Ecology Coatings Inc. has announced the development of bio-based additives that purportedly enhance curing speed, pigment coverage and other surface effects in commercial applications.

A company statement said Ecology had “developed bio-based materials for use in a new family of EcoQuik UV-curable coatings.”

A bio-based material is a product derived from living matter. The company noted, for example, that casein-A phosphoprotein is a material extracted from milk and then processed in various ways for use in protective coatings, paints and other products.

"While Ecology's coatings incorporating bio-based materials have produced impressive performance results, they remain extremely cost competitive,” said CEO Bob Crockett. “These coatings provide Ecology Coatings with a competitive edge in an industry that is beginning to develop new technologies to replace costly, environmentally unfriendly products with more sustainable ones."

He added: “Consumers are becoming more conscious about the products they use and their long-term impact on the environment. This consumer awareness has prompted many companies to incorporate sustainability as an element of their business strategy and provide products that are more energy efficient, environmentally friendly, cost effective and, in many cases, alternatives to petroleum-based products."

Michigan-based Ecology Coatings develops and licenses development and licensing of cleantech ultraviolet (UV) curable coatings.
